    About 15 minutes if the traffic isn't too bad.

    thanks, ynot. And appreciate the title change, too.

    15 minutes by car? Foot?

    As usual, all the details are a bit vague and discrepancies are being reported. Still not sure where the first shooting took place, if there was a second location (e.g. the median shooting), how many people have lost their lives, and if the shooter began or ended in the classroom (some reports have him shooting outside, then inside; and vice versa).

    God bless those individuals who've lost their lives today; in a most horrific, and sad, manner. And God bless all those who tended to the wounded, and who responded - LE, EMT, and all the other folks involved.

    My suspicion is that we are going to find out about an unemployed man who had returned to school, was not making it, and has a history of violent outbreaks in his past. Nursing school is brutally difficult, and I know of one of my fellow students who was released from the program for mental instability; we saw her hanging out at the parking lot, and we always worried that she'd have a gun. I am NOT excusing the gunman, just sharing my experience in both nursing school and with a student we were scared of.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Ynot, thanks for that. It would have to have been driving...no way he could've gotten that far without a car. Not a straight line by any stretch, you know?

    I'm wondering now if the median shooting wasn't because he jacked a car to get away.

    That will be interesting to follow.

    15 minutes by car. Alameda's an island; he could also have gone south and come in over the Otis St. bridge but an easier/more direct route would be to go up the frontage road that tracks the highway, then cut over using the High St. tunnel (this is the path that's highlighted on that Google map).

    I'm not seeing for sure that he was apprehended at Ross--anyone find a link yet?

    No, I don't have a link...I heard it on FOX and also while flipping channels (not Fox, but another cable station. Sorry, I can't recall which one). And to be clear, some reports have said that the median shooting report was actually at the school - that it may be there isn't a second location, but that there may have been some confusion as to where the bodies were laying.

    Dunno. I am sure the presser later will clear things up (but I won't be able to watch it; and am not sure it's even announced yet).

    Suspect in Oakland religious school shooting detained miles away

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    This article says seven dead? Three injured. This is just awful. Guns are flying off the shelves though. If you scroll down you can view a really graphic video. Students being pulled from the building.

    Seven people died and three others were wounded in a shooting at a small California religious college Monday, Oakland police said.

    An Asian male in his 40s was detained as a suspect, but he has not yet been charged in the shooting, according to police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said.

    A former nursing student who opened fire in a small Christian university Monday morning, killing seven and wounding three more, first told his former classmates to line up against a wall before pulling a handgun and sending students fleeing in panic, a witness said.

    Police Chief: Disgruntled student planned school massacre

    7:37 a.m. Tuesday, April 3, 2012

    KTVU And Wires

    OAKLAND, Calif. —

    A disgruntled ex-student strolled the halls of a small private university – “systematically and randomly shooting victims” -- in a “premeditated” killing spree fueled by anger over his expulsion from the school and the way he was treated by fellow students, the Oakland police chief said Tuesday.

    One L. Goh, 43, was in custody Tuesday morning in the wake of a shooting at Oikos University, a small Christian university located near Oakland International Airport, that had left seven people dead and three wounded.

    In a pre-dawn press conference, police chief Howard Jordan said Goh was upset with administers at the school and the way some students treated him. At least one witness told KTVU on Monday that Goh had been bullied by students.
